NASS Meeting Delivers Education, Excitement

Eeric Truumees, MD

The North American Spine Society (NASS) held its 29th Annual Meeting at San Francisco’s Moscone Center, Nov. 11–15, 2014. Program chairs Charles A. Reitman, MD and Michael Reed, DPT, OCS, and the Program committee assembled an excellent program mixing reports on surgical and nonsurgical spine care with the latest research, along with symposia and debates.

Special speakers
NASS President William C. Watters III, MD, of Houston, delivered a powerful personal address on the two sides to the physician-provider relationship. Noting that most caregivers will find themselves on the patient side eventually, Dr. Watters explored the issue using his own care after sustaining an arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. He was the first patient in the Texas Heart Institute’s hypothermia registry and experienced an excellent outcome.
